Midwifery Service Maternity

Description

What Does the ADHB High Risk Midwifery Team Do?

We are a team of midwives who are experts in caring for women who require extra attention during pregnancy. This might be due to medical conditions, past and present pregnancy complications or fetal abnormalities.

We provide information and ongoing midwifery support throughout your pregnancy. We work business hours only. If you have questions or concerns outside these hours that are not urgent please feel free to leave us a message. If it is urgent please phone the Women's Assessment Unit on 307 4949 x 25900

We work together in a multidisciplinary team to provide care. The other members of our team include obstetricians, physicians, dietitians, physiotherapists and social workers.  We have regular meetings to review your care.

How Do You Get Referred to the ADHB High Risk Midwifery Team?

Your doctor or lead maternity carer (LMC) can refer you to our service. Once you are referred, our team will review the information we receive and either communicate with your LMC or contact you directly to arrange a clinic appointment.
